Learn to Cook or Explore the Wilderness at WDW – 2 New Experiences Coming This Summer

If you’re heading to WDW soon, try something new with two unique experiences coming to Walt Disney World Resort. From a culinary adventure to a trip through the wilderness, these unique events will have something the entire family will enjoy. This information was released to Disney Vacation Club Members earlier this week offering them exclusive dates to book the experiences. Nothing in that announcement to DVC members indicates when all guests will be offered the opportunity to book but new types of reservations usually open to the general public a week following DVC member reservation availability.
